Image Guiding & B/E Scanning Switch

Integration of OCT and Image Guiding System

During clinical diagnosis, physicians need to obtain as much information as possible. Therefore, combining the Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) system with the image guiding function can enhance its clinical usability and is vital to improving examination efficiency.

AMO's image guiding system allows users to switch between skin image guiding and OCT scanning modes according to different needs. To start off, the user finds the area to be scanned using image guidance. During the scan, the user will switch to the OCT scanning mode, then switch back to the image guidance mode once the scan is complete.

Image Registration and Precise Positioning

AMO's image guiding system features image registration and precise positioning functions, allowing the guiding images to be compared to OCT images. Through image registration, users can understand where the OCT relative position is on the actual skin. Precise positioning can record the exact position for future tracking, which can then be used to compare images for different measurements.

High-speed B/E Scanning Switch

Based on a patient’s various pathologies, detailed images need to be taken in multiple directions in order to provide the physician with sufficient information for interpretation and clinical diagnosis.

Differing from en face scanning mode of FFOCT, AMO's OCT system has the added function of fast cross-sectional scanning. The user can easily switch between the B-scan and E-scan in just 1 second. This avoids the potentially disastrous issue of overlooking a lesion and makes the process of diagnosis much more efficient.
